Middle Eastern music by Helm and songs by Doug Adamz begin the program, which will raise money for the Rachel Corrie Foundation, the Marin County advocacy group 14 Friends of Palestine, and Keep Hope Alive, a project of Northern California presbyteries that organizes trips to Palestine to help plant or harvest olive trees.
